The Music Generation Mayo 'Soundworlds Early Years Music Programme,’ facilitated in partnership with Mayo County Childcare Committee, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2019 All Ireland Community and Council Awards for Best Education/Training Initiative.
Established in 2013 the ‘Soundworlds Early Years Music Programme’ is a creative music making programme developed specifically for pre-school children. It aims to introduce younger children to music while building self-confidence and self-esteem and creating a direct pathway to music education. Musicians collaborate with Early Childhood Care and Education staff to create a rich learning environment, where children are encouraged to explore sound and music through a range of play activities and group work. Part of the Music Generation Mayo programme, ‘Soundworlds’ is delivered in partnership with Mayo County Childcare Committee who provide childcare services suitable to the individual needs of all children and the aspirations of parents.
The All Ireland Community and Council Awards presented by IPB Insurance and LAMA highlight and recognise communities and councils working together, bringing national recognition to projects and developments that may otherwise go unrecognised. Town, Borough, City and County Councillors across Ireland nominate projects across 20+ categories that demonstrate the work implemented through unique projects that enhance their local area for the good of the community.
The winners, representing their counties, will be announced at a Gala Awards Ceremony on 9 February 2019 in Croke Park Stadium.
